Gramma Bertha's Banana Cake

Reviewed: May 28, 2007
Definitely five stars! I served at a bar-b-que (with cream cheese frosting) and everyone loved it! I doubled the recipe and also made muffins. I also added walnuts and baked at 325 degrees until done (that way it's a nice golden brown on outside and done in the middle without burning). Thank you for sharing your Gramma's recipe! Does she have any other special recipes to share??

Poppy Seed Bread with Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Wow...delicious!!! I would give it ten stars ,too, if I could (as per another reviewer)! This is the exact same recipe as Poppy Seed Bread III on this website, except that recipe calls for baking at 400 degrees. That is way too high for my oven. This recipe is just right, although I always bake my muffins and breads at around 325 or 335 for a little longer so the edges don't burn. Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
Yummy... five stars as is, but easily modified. I followed the recipe and portion sizes. I did add a 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, onion powder and pepper to the crockpot, and used chicken broth instead of water. I also found (as per another reviewer) that I needed to cook the biscuits a lot longer than 30 minutes. I cooked them for almost two hours. This is a delicious recipe. Next time I will add fresh celery and carrots. I liked adding two cans of biscuit mix. I will also try using Bisquick one time. A keeper recipe that can be easily tweaked. Thank you.

Very good and easy to make. I added a bit extra peppers, onions and mushrooms. I used Golden Pepperoncini because that is what I had on hand. My kids really liked this!

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Easy and healthy...can't beat that! I broiled my halibut on each side with sauce instead of barbequing. My 13 year old son loved it! Thank you for the recipe.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
This recipe was very easy to make and very tasty. The whole family enjoyed, and was good leftover in bean, cheese, rice and chicken burritoes. I used red pepper because I didn't have any green pepper, but next time I will use green - the green color will make a nice contrast to the red in the tomatoes. Thank you.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Really enjoyed this easy chili! I did half the amount of tomato juice called for, as I read other comments about the chili being a bit too soupy. I also added a whole chopped green pepper. I thought the consistency and flavor were very good. Made it yesterday in the crock pot. After my son had friends over there is only one small serving left today! will add to my recipe box. Thank you, George.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This banana bread was very easy to make. I did use the full amount of bananas 2 1/3 c. which turned out to be about 4 1/2 bananas. I also used half whole wheat, half white flour. I cut back on the butter by almost half and added some plain yogurt and sour cream to make up the difference. I then added 1 tsp. pumpkin pie mix (I was out of cinnamon) and 1 cup chopped walnuts. Sounds like a lot of tweaks, but that is the beauty of this type of recipe. Easy to make and modify.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

Reviewed: May 7, 2008
Very easy to make. It's the traditional butterscotch oatmeal cookie recipe - can't go wrong with these cookies! I always bake my cookies at about 365 degrees instead of 375 - I find that temp. too high. Thanks for the recipe!

Cherry Pie III

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
I made the crust using a different recipe which calls for 2 2/3 cup flour, 1 cup shortening , 1 tsp salt and 7 -8 tblsps. ice cold water. I didn't think 2 cups was enough cherries, so I added 4 cups ( I used fresh - a bit of extra work but I think worth the effort). I think it's a delicious pie!!

Slow-Cooked Steak Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
I only had round steak in the house, so I used that. I forget how long I cooked it overall, but just kept it on until the meat was tender. Thank you for the recipe!

Cinnamon Belgian Waffles

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I wavered between four and five stars. In the end, I give this recipe five stars, because they taste so good. The only thing I would like is to have them turn out a little crispier. I will try to add cornstarch in place of some of the flour next time, like a previous reviewer suggested, to make them a bit crispier.. I made these on a cold, rainy Southern California morning. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so substituted skim milk with a 1 1/2 tsp white vinegar (let the milk and vinegar sit for fove minutes - voila! buttermilk substitute). I also added lots extra cinnamon (1 tsp.) and added extra sugar (about 3 tblsps.). We served with a warm fruit topping (frozen mixed berries, water, a bit of sugar, lemon juice cooked on the stove - add water/cornstarch mix in the end to thicken). Thank you for the recipe!! The whole family enjoyed.

Everyone enjoyed these. I did add about 1 /2 onion, which I slightly sauteed in a frying pan before adding to the beef mixture. I will add this recipe to my recipe box and use as my once a week beef recipe every once in a awhile. Very easy to make. Thank you for the recipe!

Easy Turkey Tetrazzini

Very tasty use of leftover turkey. I substituted fresh mushrooms, and used cream of mushroom soup with some celery salt because that is what I had on hand. I also added some sauted onions, and some extra parmesan cheese. Thank you for the recipe.
